Lion baseball sets out on the road to the playoffs

Prior to the game, the team huddles for a prayer. The Lions are currently tied with Vista Ridge with a 7-5 record.

With a very hard-played season this year, the Varsity baseball team only has two more regular season district games this year and both are against Dripping Springs, the team in first place in district play.

Following Friday’s loss to Vista Ridge that snapped an undefeated away game streak, the Lions are currently 7-5 (tied with Vista Ridge) and the Tigers are 10-2.

In order to get into the playoffs, the Lions must win the first game against Dripping Springs and hope that Vista Ridge loses. This will guarantee them a spot in the playoffs and they will keep playing through May.

Junior Joel Miller will pitch tonight. His last appearance on the mound was last Tuesday’s home win against Vista Ridge.

The players ask that students and fans make the drive out to support the Lions tonight at Dripping Springs at 7 P.M.

“This is the biggest game of the year and we have to win it,” senior Andrew Alaniz said.
